During a BYOB cooking lesson, Chef Connie Sun helps you unlock the secrets behind making two traditional styles of dumplings, one with spicy fillings and the other involving milder ingredients.

Your Host

Connie SunConnie Sun
Chef, Dumpling Master


As soon as Connie Sun could hold a pair of chopsticks, the young foodie was in the kitchen, where she learned traditional Chinese cooking techniques from her grandparents, both of whom were chefs. Later on, she earned a culinary arts degree and mastered the art of making dumplings, which she constantly made for her friends who kept begging for more. Realizing she was on to something, Chef Sun opened her own catering company and brought her spicy and non-spicy dumplings to a wider audience.


Where You'll Meet

The event will be held at a Tribeca residence. The exact address will be shared after purchase.
